We have just marked 20 years from the fall of Berlin Wall. the fall of Berlin war started a domino effect and in 1989 people in country after country in the Eastern Europe raised against their own national communist regimes and forced changes. Those changes differed from country to country.
A friend of mine pointed out to me a youtube video of the 2009 winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent. You might ask what does this have to do with the collapse of the communist regimes. The winner of the show, Kseniya Simonova, a sand animation artist tells the story of her country, the struggle they went through. She has a great talent and the way she tells the story is moving. Even though I know very little of Ukraine history, I do recognise symbols and struggles that were common to many Eastern European countries.
What a wonderful talent and what a powerful story!
This is my first encounter with sand art, and I am very impressed!
